Povidone Iodine   1  0   

Posted by Patricia (Laguna Niguel) on 12/19/2007

[YEA]  I love this website! Lots of wonderful home remedies. I read about Iodine and went on ebay- I bought Povidone- Iodine first to try, and painted myself with it over every problem area of my skin- the colors were disappearing in 15 minutes or so. The bottle says for external use only and do not apply it over large areas of the skin. Well, I have not tried take it internally yet, but as I understand it, Povidone is used for prep surgeries, which means it is in contact with blood and internal organs. After my first application on small areas, I noticed that the morning after I could see significant improvement on my skin where there used to be acne-like pumps that I had for several years- some shrank and some went away. I then started using it on all scars and it seems to make them more smooth and heal better. Upon seeing that, I asked my husband to paint me all over my back- dry, flaky skin with red irritable spots- and over night, they became more smooth. So I started to use it more and more, sometimes it stains my clothes, but my skin seemed to be healing. Don't know if that is also indication of my iodine deficiency. I wonder if it works any differently from Lugol's. I do have signs of low thyroid function, like cold intolerance, poor circulation. Can you tell me if I can take the Povidone internally? How is it different from Lugol's?

[WARNING!]   Do not ingest providone iodine, yes it is used in surgeries but only for prepping. It does not come in contact with the organs.

Iodine defficiency is common, because most of what we eat is grown in mineral-depleated soil. It makes sense that iodine would clear up skin conditions, since that point was made many times by Cayce in his health readings. The concept is to give each cell what it needs, usually iodine (defficient) and it will restore circulation that is lacking / messed up, then clear out blockages, like redness, bumps, moles, warts, scars-- all results of poor circulation (superfiicial/ surface-level).

No, one should NEVER ingest Povidone-- it is not made for that, neither are iodine sanitizer tablets (that's why they taste horrible & you will immediately spit it out! ). But since most of us don't live near seawater, the source of iodine salt (it can be a liquid or salt dissolved in water, and evaporates when heated like anby salt will), and lack access to safe seafood and fresh kelp or any sea plats would be great (but taste awful dried), then either 1. ) eat sushi, as it is wrapped in Nori, a dried kelp (favorite snack of Japanese-- they eat it like jerky), or 2. ) have some miso soup -- it comes with Nori or some other kelp pieces in it, or 3. ) purchase Atomidine, is 14. 00 a reg. Sized dropper bottle which will last you forever nearly. Directions for its use, also called tri-chloric iodine (tastes like pool water -- take alone in pure water an hour after morning meal -- as it's a slight stimulant, like ginseng is-- or take 1/2 hour before breakfast), directions are readily available on many websites: like any thyroid-related remedy, one should not take it constantly (though doctors advise T4 replacement thyroxine to be taken daily & regularly for life, this syntheti drug has a LOT of side-effects that may be worse than a low thyroid function; I recommend everyone try iodine supplement only in this orally-designed supplement before going onto thyroxin permanently, to see if you can allow your thyroid to fix itself first.)

It was originally patented by Dow Chem. Co. (one of the actually good things they come up with) in 1931 or 1932 (there is also a Dr. Who/ chemist who came up with the bascially identical tri-chloric iodine, besides Dow's Atomidine, around the same time), and the patent for the latter was transferred to Cayce's Foundation via its Heritage Store (from Dow, I think is how it went). It is purported to also protect from polio (a virus) and some other stuff like malaria (a mosquito parasite they carry in their blood of the female ones).

It is said that making sure you enough iodone (the recommended RDA of the FDA) is the most crucial mineral or viatamin because Cayce asserted that it is the thyroid (! ) that is the ''master gland'' (! ) and not some part or gland of the brain (the hypothalamus controls the thyroid via a feedback loop, so that it is mutual control, but modern belief calls the pituitary the ''master gland, '' which controls growth, even though the pituitary is controlled by the thyroid-- so go figure), as is erroneously believed today. (While self-hypnotised, the ghost of an ancient learned surgeon, an advanced doctor--from a time when medicine was even more advanced than today, spoke though Cayce, allowing him to cure thousands or tens of thousands of supposedly incurable cases with various maladies, including using OMT/Osteopathic spinal manipulation that a D. O. Does, which is vagely similar to Chiropractic adjustment, and all done from his couch-- he would float there he said, and could see the person, from accross the country, inside & out, and immediately know their ailments & how to cure them, but remembered nothing on waking, so someone was there to write it all down. He was also studies by the AMA, and told a person to perform the first modern bone mending successfully with a nail).

Directions/ Doage: findable on numerous websites, the treatment regimen for the dietary supplement includes varying dosage and not continuously: 1 drop in 1/2 cup purest water 1st day, then 2 drops in water 2nd day, then then 3 drops the 3rd day, then 4 drops the 4th day, then leave off & stop taking it for like 4 days. Other direcrtions say a drop each day for 2 days, 2 drops for days 3 & 4, and then 3 drops for day 5 & 6, then 4 drops the 4th day & then quit & stop for a whole week, but then resume the following week. If you seem to hyper or flush or anxious, then only do it for 1 week out of the month. You should see much more energy and sleep better and feel less tired. This is suupposed to help just about any condition (especially hair & nails, but that also calls for calcios bone marow paste, or sardines, daily on a cracker too, with lemon flavor).

Some people even claim thay had been diagnosed with terminal unreatable cancer, moved to the seaside to die, had someone tell them to eat tons of kelp with iodine and then made a full recovery. SO goes the stories in published books about his life work & people who stumbled on his remedies. By the way, the FDA says it is safe to eat seafood that grows close to the coeastlines, like oysters, crab, some lobster, scallops?, especiialy bottom-feeding carp and catfish, and small or canned tuna (not deepwater tuna like endangered bluefin or plentiful small ocean skipjack) once per week and not more than twice (maybe 3 times) because you never know where it was caught and metal levels there in the water and the danger of heaby metal toxins accumulating faster than you can eliminate them, like mercury and lead or cadmium from batteries, etc. Dumped in the oceans, usually near coastlines where those things grow and eat from. Once or twice per week, I believe is what the FDA says. But you can always eat plenty of kelp or take pills of it, since it grows mainly in deepwater clean areas. (Yikes! , no Japanese-waters-caught kelp for a while, so no glowing in the dark, though, ok?)

Oh, I forgot to mention a warning (though I did say to abide by FDA dietary recommendations in my other post): not only is THIS (Povidone iodine) form of iodine designed only for topical use and should never be drank, it is also very easy to poinson yourself when taking even an approved iodine dietary supplement, and extreme caution taken not to exceded recommended dose daily. I believe the FDA says something like one and a half to 2 thousand MICROgrams, 2 I think. And I believe anything over 6mcg can be dangerous (according to several thyroid problem websites). SO no, don't ever drink this stuff, but do look for a natural supplement that adheres to strict manufacturing control guidelines or eat a lot of seafood , mainly fish & others that are NOT bottom feeders (except once or twice per week for those) and a lot of kelp or any other sea vegetables (they do a lot in Scotland at foorball games like we do hotdogs). Sunomono is the Japanese word for seaweed salad-- very tastey, as it is flavored with sesame oil. Or buy the dropper bottle of tri-chloric iodine & have a dop in 1/2 cup of water every other day or something. Testing your T4 level will tell you if youmay not be getting anough iodine from produce / vegetables, etc. Grown in good, mineral-rich soil (containing salts and alluvian soil from the sea). This is also one reason it is usually better to buy locally-grown produce.

After facial surgery on my nose I had scar tissue build up and the doctor did a number of steroid shots. However I still had scar tissue build-up so I did some research and came up with this process. I decided when I take my evening shower I would remove my make up and very carefully put castor oil on my nose and let the steam from the shower to help the oil penetrate deeper into my skin tissue, and I just leave the oil on my nose overnight. When I awake I take my morning shower and I put on surgical glove and very carefully apply 50% tea tree oil and 50 % lavender oil on my nose and slowly massage it in, while I'm still in the warm steamy shower and I allow my face to drip dry once I'm out of the shower. Please be very careful not to let this mixture ever get in your eyes. I have been super duper careful... Zero problems Anyhow, I'm seeing dramatic results in three months the scar tissue has dissolved a lot truly amazing and I'm seeing a finer definition to the area. I hope this information helps someone else!

Ingredients: pure honey
Instructions: The best remedy for scars is honey. It works very well. You rub it on the scar many times during the day for some days, and you'll see. It leaves no mark. http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/keloid_scar.html

OR

Linda used 100% Pure Olive Oil on her scar from having a C-Section and it worked great! It's almost as if it wasn't ever there. Just rub it on your scar 2-3 times a day. Works great!

Peanut oil is effective on scar. It is especially useful for scar suffered by diabetes patients.

Edgar Cayce formula for removal of severe burn scars.
Camphorated oil, 2 ounces
Lanolin, dissolved, 1/2 teaspoon
Peanut oil, 1 ounce

This message is for TAN KONG PENG. from SINGAPORE:
Dear Tan Kong Peng, I appreciate the time you spend writing. I have been enjoying your emails on nutritional treatment and prevention for various ailments. While supplementation might be needed in severe cases of diseases caused by vitamin/mineral deficiencies, your approach to treating illness with natural foods that nourish the body with their natural vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals,etc, is very much appreciated. Since I am very natural-oriented, I would much rather eat the foods (preferably raw, or minimally processed and organic) than spend money on twenty different supplements! For those of us who are interested in natural foods and healing herbs, please keep the emails coming.

Would you or anyone in our beautiful family of Earthclinic members know of a good recipe for a natural food based electrolyte drink? My son is an athlete who perspires profusely during games. I would like to use things like Apple Cider Vinegar, and bananas for potassium, lemon for its rich mineral content, honey for its natural hydrogen peroxide oxygenating property and energy boosting, blackstrap molasses, sea salt, and/or any other food sources of minerals. How can any of above be used in a good mix (and how much of each) to prepare a perfectly balanced energy drink with all necesarry electrolytes? I don't want to buy commercial sports drinks full of sugar, so I would greatly appreciate anyone's input. Thank you much! Marea

I have this suggestion. Coconut water. This is a natural, highly nutritive substance which I feel will meet your son's needs quite nicely. It is, quite possibly, the perfect after sports beverage. It is easy to come by providing you can secure a coconut, hammer, and screwdriver. Enjoy.

I have a dark scar on my lower leg from a bad MRSA skin infection in November. It's a large purplish circle with a darker, indented one inside (where the MRSA had made a bullet-wound sized hole). It's pretty ugly. Any ideas on how to fade it?

MSM is supposed to help heal scars and many other ailments. you have to start out with low dosages and work your way up to higher dosages. Good news, it is inexpensive!

You could try serrapeptase--it's an enzyme that digests tissue such as scars.

Urine   1  0

[YEA]  Sounds kind of odd and gross, but if you use your pee (urine) on wounds that have scabbed over, it will eventually fade until you can't see that you ever had a wound in the first place! In 2013, I gashed my forehead pretty good with a stick. It was about an inch long and looked like a Nike symbol. A friend of mine told me to pee on the tip of my finger and put it on the scab every morning (fresh pee in the morning is the best). I did this and now, you can't even see that there was ever a scar. Pretty amazing!

Vitamin E   5  0   

Posted by Denise (Soperton, Georgia) on 04/03/2009

[YEA]  To help fade the scars try Vitamin E Oil. I had very bad scars on the tops of my feet from an accident. After three years the scars were still very red, tender, and itched. I would cover the tops of my feet with the oil every night after I had washed them. After covering my feet with the oil I would put a large band aid on top of my feet to keep the oil from making a mess and keep it on my feet. I did this a couple of months and the scars faded, and was no longer tender or red. The scares are 80 to 90% better. My scars were very deep. Third degree burns. Yes, you can still see a little bit of the scar on my left foot, which was the worst. But the right foot you would never know that I had had a very bad scar there.

[YEA]   Vitamin E is wonderful for scars! I had a bike accident and got road rash on my right arm, above the elbow. I went to urgent care to get it cleaned properly, and followed their directions for wound healing, but as SOON as it was all new skin (nothing open) I began applying Vitamin E oil. I found it in a small bottle at the expensive grocery store in the vitamin section.

I rubbed it on the new skin three to four time a day, especially after a shower or bath, and at bedtime. It's been one month since the crash and you can hardly see where the road rash was. I think it's helping with the lumpy painful bone bruise, too.

I also took a LOT of Vit C (4000-5000 mg/day) and I think that helped too.

[YEA]  I just recently removed two moles that were on my chest area which have now turned a dark purplish color. I heard that vitamin E oil works well on them. I have been putting on the oil and rubbing it in at least 3 times a day for a week now and it seems to be working well on the scars. Has anyone used this method before and is this what how i should be applying it?

[YEA]   Vitamin E Works! I remember when I was a kid my mom had fallen on her face (she slipped on loose dirt) and scraped her face -the right cheek bone area. It looked horrible almost like a 'rug burn'. It was about the size of a quarter & dark in color (my mom was fair). Someone told her to apply liquid Vitamin E on it daily and it will fade or go away. She did this numerous times a day for about one year and it was very successful! The scar eventually faded away completly!! I as a child was amazed and never forgot that remedy for scars!

[YEA]   Absolutely LOVE this site - I read this thread and thought I would add my 2 cents worth - When I was in my 20s I fell off a small boat which had a piece of metal that caught the back of my calf - not a deep cut, but a nice slice right up the middle. It healed but left a terrible scar - after about a year I did a bit of research (prior to any computers! ) and decided to try Vitamin E on the scar - I simply opened up a capsule (brand does not matter) and applied it to the scar twice a day - messy and gooey stuff, but it does absorb after an hour or so - after doing this for two weeks the scar disappeared. To this day you can't see a thing - this was 30 years ago and still my calf looks flawless! Easy to do and no side effects. Hope this helps!

Hi Bonnie, what a coincidence that I just saw your post as I was going to post one of my own. I have been reading a lot about Vit. E and C for scars. In my youth, over 40 years ago I was silly enough to play with a flame under something that melted and fell on my hand. It made a big hole that took time to heal and of course left a bad scar, like a bean. It never bothered me but I used to say that I couldn't rob banks without gloves otherwise it would be easy to recognize my hand. Lately I have been taking up to 5g of Vit. C and 400 to 600 IU of Vit. E and suddenly saw that although my scar hasn't disappeared it had got very flat.

I didn't try the oil on the scar itself only because to be honest I don't even think about this scar anymore but I have been trying it under my eyes, unfortunately without much luck. Many years ago I had little fat things (sorry, forget the name) and the skin doctor used laser on them with the result that I was left with a lot of little scars like warts. I had hoped that those would get better with the Vitamin E oil but that hasn't happened although I applied it twice a day for quite a while. I can't apply it at night anymore because the oil would run into my eyes and I would wake up with swollen eyes so I will maybe go on only during the day. Maybe I should persevere seeing that your scar disappeared completely.....

E Vitamin is a widespread particular vitamin that others are able to employ. Anybody who chooses to apply Vitamin E Antioxidant in the eating routine needs to analyze a few things dependent upon the food products that could include that vitamin. They are foods and nutrients which could be seen in totally different types. The following are some of the most typically used ingredients on this planet in terms of receiving the human body's correct amount of Vitamin E Antioxidant.

The typical food products which can provide Vitamin E Antioxidant are cereals. It's often seen in whole wheat germ oils. Nonetheless, the levels of cereals that have E Vitamin are usually more diversified than that. E Vitamin can be seen in numerous totally different ingredients within your grains family. It usually is highlighted in plant seeds and various nuts of all kinds.

The benefit from vitamin E which may be seen in plant seeds or various nuts will vary using the kinds of seed or nut products which are being used. In spite of this, it'll be simple to have E Vitamin off from these food products. The fact these could be generated throughout the world helps make this a useful concern for the wellness.

Greens also offer Vitamin E Antioxidant. All of these veggies can incorporate kale and cabbage. Some other greens will even offer E Vitamin. Nevertheless, the degrees of Vitamin E Antioxidant in veggies such as these aren't going to be as powerful as they possibly be around veggies.
